“ILDP is an initiative of the International Council of Young Lasallians that started 16 years ago,” said Alisa Macksey, Vice President for Mission, Diversity and Inclusion. Earlier themes include Justice, Peace, Solidarity; peace without borders; and kindle our hearts of peace.

La Salle kicked off its participation in ILDP with an on-campus event and a virtual event. University Ministry, Service, and Support (UMSS) held an outdoor worship service on September 21, where students, faculty and staff gathered on the Hansen Quad at the newly installed Peace Pole.

“This is an opportunity for the La Salle University community—students, staff and faculty—to connect with the global Lasallian family,” said Macksey. “This month is a time for Lasallians around the world to be more self-aware and to recognize that change comes from ourselves and the conscious choices we make. A time to reflect on how we can all help find new avenues to peace by celebrating differences, being inclusive, respecting and acknowledging all people, and listening to others.”
